Also here, is a discussion on "Duck Pins" a variation of bowling using smaller balls and pins.

Ah, remember when bowling was like the high classy ting one could do in the 1950's? When men bowled in ties and women wore furs when they went to the bowling alley? Well, you can relive those moments in the delirious 'Let's Go Bowling', a film which puts bowling on the same level as, say, church going, as being the requirement of any 1950's respectable person, but remember! Only in 'approved' locations. These approved locations always have instructors who get a LITTLE too close when teaching you how to bowl, and who have their names engraved on their (bowling) balls. Oh, and this is large pin bowling. The topic of small pin bowling, with smaller balls and pins, is briefly covered here. But you'll be a wimp if you play that because a) you'll never get a strike and b) you'll be bowling by yourself as they'll be noone else around. A bowling lesson bookmarked by bizarre observations of bowling culture, this is a reccomended ridiculous romp trip through a small-gauge sport.
